? they include senator john kerry or u.n. ambassador susan rice. of course, senator john kerry recently spent a lot of time with president obama. he helped him on debate preparations. another person who has been very vocal about wanting to leave if the president has a second term. treasury secretary timothy geithner. he's been the president's right hand man when it comes to the economy. he helped bring the economy back from the brink in 2009. possible replacements for geithner include the current chief of staff jack lou, who is widely respected within this administration but also within washington, d.c. another person who might potentially be leaving is defense secretary leon panetta. leon panetta is someone who might be ready to retire from what has been a long and distinguished career in politics. dates back to 1977 when he was in the house of representatives. possible replacements include his deputy secretary and also michelle flourney, the former undersecretary of defense. and then attorney general eric holder possibly leaving. possible replacements for him include homeland security secre
neeratt tandon massachusetts senator john kerry, susan rice, national security adviser tom donilon. although there's been talk about the benghazi attacks may have hurt her chances. is kerry the front runner? >> kerry has a lot going for him because he has negotiated around the world. he's been senate foreign relations chair. he obviously spent a lot of time with the president. we shouldn't underestimate how important @ to have a real chemistry with the president. there's a lot of trust to develop. obviously president obama and secretary of state hillary clinton had a great chemistry and really relied on each other. there was a trust built up there. so i think that's the real test is whether the president can really trust john kerry to speak for him and he e spent a lot of time with him recently. so i think he has a good sense of that by now. >> there's been a lot of talk about by the president about bipartisanship. this is one area where people have suggested maybe he'd reach across the aisle and pick a republican. names mentioned included jon huntsman, chuck hagel and colin powell
demographic. i don't believe for one minute that john kerry would have had the same appeal in the way coming in two successful elections, that obama had. i agree that there are probably some big issues that need to be dealt with in a different way with certain portions of the electorate. i believe we had a fourth candidate. new sod jolt benisons analysis of the election. soft underbelly was the people did not trust him. they did not know what you believe it. conservatives did not know what to believe. you had a guy running for president and it was not until the tail and that the conservatives came home hard for romney as romney and not just being against obama. politics is a lot more dynamic. remember, two years ago, we had a huge republican wave. as you look of the way at least congressional districts are locked bin for the foreseeable future, you have a lot of bleeding out of redistricting that happened, but you have a lot of members who were in republican districts where they are locked in where they are pretty white and locked in and they have quadra is back at home that favor them. some
senator john kerry, head of the senate foreign relations committee would be interested in a job, though his open senate seat would trigger another special election in massachusetts. the democrats holding a solid majority in the senate, it could be something the white house would be open to explore. >> maybe the president is willing to into the possibility of using -- losing a senate seat if you want some bad enough. >> treasury secretary timothy geithner expressed his desire to return to private life. whiskey tax cuts set to expire and sequestration living, his departure is slated to be delayed. >> people like secretary geithner have put a lot of energy into the issues related to the fiscal cliff, and they're going to want to see it through. >> the same is true of defense secretary leon panetta who pled with congress to find a solution to automatic cuts that could be devastating to the pentagon. today a spokesman shot down talk of his departure. >> the secretary is focused squarely on his job today. focused on the missions, the department of defense command not his personal situation. >
. for secretary of state, john kerry not just because he won't be the part but because he has the depth of knowledge and capacity to deal with the gnarly problems out there. let's face it, the agenda isn't pretty. even after we're out of afghanistan and iraq, the middle east is a mess. the iran situation is a conundrum and china is omnipresent. for defense, colin powell among the wisest and thoughtful military leaders out there plain and simple. the ccny grad, too. dennis or gary. dennis has proven to his advocacy of better markets they've fully understands and actions that need to be brought and during his more than 15 years as a partner one of the nation's largest and finest law firms, he proved he knows the actual nuts and bolts of the lawyering that is used to mask what is going on. genser will has been a wonderful rice for reform from his perch at the cftc. proven where you come from is effective of how you think. >> joe, the other half of the krugman equation. his nobel and writings prove he, too, is one of the few
of speculation that john kerry could be the next secretary of state. you know what that would lead to? within six months we could have a special election in massachusetts for another u.s. senate. >> interesting how that happens sometimes. we showed the screen, what is that about? >> very quickly, i know you love this thing, the most expensive electoral vote, we thought we would let you know what it was between the parties. in the state of iowa, maybe more money spent in virginia, but per electoral votes, $12 million for the electoral votes. i think people should know that the virginia senate race cost almost $80 million, the massachusetts senate race, just over $70 million, a little perspective here, 12 years ago. bush and gore, when they ran for president both spent less than that just on their general election budgets, that was for president, this is what senate races cost now. >> all right, chuck todd with the good, the bad and the ugly and some of the damage from last night. chuck, thanks, we'll be talking about this for a long time. when we come back, this really was the election the whole w
's a republican governor. few senators names that get floated for various positions, john kerry for state, jack reid for defense. the situation in their states about, you know, democrats spent a lot of money to get 55 seats i don't know if they want to give up any right away. >> one question, florida, florida, florida, doesn't matter in terms of the presidency. does it matter? there will be a recount? >> well the way the law works, andrea, point one half of 1%, .5, .5 of 1% automatic recount. unless the losing candidate submits in writing to the secretary of state's office that they don't want one. so everybody's waiting to see what the final count is. our guys, shelly, thinks it was up to .51 which would be just above the automatic. so i think everybody's waiting for it. we've got three more counties. our man in florida, three more counties. let's get that in. should have it in in two days and then we'll find out if it's needed. i know the republican governor there is pressuring, there's pressure on boston, if it qualifies for a recount they would like the romney folks not ask for one. >> well
? >> did anyone think president bush don't you think you should bring john kerry in to help with the negotiations? >> caller: how many times did george w. bush bring in al gore for consultation after? >> stephanie: i'm sorry and my head is still exploding. he won in a landslide and gregory is still making my head explode. >> caller: this phantom of bipartisanship that they keep worshiping. at some point you have to say you know what, we have now twice elected the same guy. >> stephanie: by a landslide. >> caller: we want him to do his plan. >> stephanie: say the l. word with us. >> do you think the american people of idiots? should he bring mitt romney in to negotiate over the fiscal cliff? what! >> caller: the very idea that they don't understand or they're just starting to grasp how wrong they were up until the very end how confident they were. i was just new oh, rude, please, i think gave gregory is right. who can't see the resounding result was that the american people want mitt romney! >> caller: mitt romney's plan should be considered. yeah. >> stephanie: sorry let me
issa. and a lot of talk about john kerry taking over as secretary of state. >> but then who will replace him in the senate? >> stephanie: it will be fun. >> it was fun until scott brown got in there. now arizona is stuck with jan brewer. ♪ bone finger ♪ >> stephanie: ann in idaho, hello, ann. >> caller: good morning, stephanie. >> stephanie: good morning. >> caller: y'all are such wonderful people, i wake up with you in the morning and go to bed with you at night. >> stephanie: ann! >> caller: now that we have put our wonderful young man into office, we have got to remember one thing. don't leave him alone. when i saw a grown man cry, i realized that this is the type of person that is going to really be able to turn this country around. >> stephanie: yeah. >> caller: but he has to has us help him. send him notices let him know whatever he does we're behind him. >> stephanie: and i think we learned our lesson in 2010 and we have his back this time. >> stephanie: mcconnell and boehner they are so smug i just want to take something and throw it at the tv
for the job is massachusetts senator john kerry who of course played mitt romney in the debate. one of the questions there, i think he would sale through the senate club, on the other hand i'm not so sure that they want to lose a senate seat. they may feel with all the pick ups that they made in november it's not going to be -- on election day it's knots going to be a question of control of the senate one way or the other so they might be willing to give up that seat potentially to scott brown who might come back in another special election. martha: they have a little bit of a cushion now which gives them a little bit of flexibility on john terry as you point out. in terms of the attorney general position, obviously heale obvious obviously eric holder has been through the ringer in the last four years. i don't think anyone would be some surprised to see him step down. any thoughts on who would replace him in he did? >> one of the people who is being mentioned and again we don't know how serious that is is janet napolitano, secretary of homeland security. she really apparently would
with an incumbent. he went after john kerry's war record. >> what did president bush do? he claimed a mandate he didn't have on iraq and it sank his presidency. sorry to interrupt. >> is there a number to sum up the election? 47%. a moment to sum up the obama campaign, it was the first debate. these were self-inflicted wounds that these candidates may to themselves. much influence do you think they had? >> i think the 47% was a pretty big deal. democrats have been laying the groundwork with these attack ads portraying romney as the guy who cared about the middle class and was interested in protecting rich people like himself. romney sort of betrayed himself. the democrats seized on that. it happened at a time when romney's candidacy was floundering. the first debate, he was able to put that 47% behind him, but the damage was done. >> he put that behind him in his first debate. he spent all that money and allow time characterizing romney as an uncaring monster. all the sudden he looked reasonable. he looked like somebody who could be president. the president did not bring his a game. part of it w
